AceShowbiz - BTS' Jungkook is officially poised to release his debut solo album. Following a rumor by Sports Chosun that claimed the LP will arrive on July 14, Big Hit Music has confirmed the record is on the way but they are yet to share a release date.
"We will make an announcement once the release schedule for Jungkook's solo album has been confirmed," the label told Star News.
The 25-year-old BTS star - whose full name is Jeon Jungkook - has released a slew of solo tracks, such as "Still With You", "Dreamers", "My You", and "Stay Alive".
Meanwhile, BTS are celebrating their 10th anniversary with a new song called "Take Two". The K-Pop septet - also comprising SUGA, Jimin, V, RM, J-Hope, and Jin - will release their second song of the year - which follows May's "The Planet" - on June 9 in honour of their loyal fanbase.
Big Hit Entertainment said, "The song conveys their appreciation toward ARMY for all the love you shower them with and their desire to always be together with you. We sincerely express our gratitude to ARMY for making the 10th anniversary possible with your endless love for BTS."
The South Korean boy band turns 10 on June 13.
The "Butter" hitmakers have also been teasing their BTS Festa event, which will take place over two weeks in Seoul. It will kick off on June 12 and run until June 25 and will take place at major landmarks, including the Han River and Seoul Tower. The main event takes place at the Han River Park on June 17.
Previously unseen content, special releases, including solo work, and much more are planned.
The band are currently on a hiatus of sorts while they focus on solo projects and embark on military service, and SUGA previously said he is looking forward to the day they reunite and hopes they have a long future ahead.
Speaking to bandmate RM on an episode of his "Suchwita" podcast, he said, "I dream of a future where the seven of us are together until we die. I'd like for the seven of us to be together for a long, long time. I don't know how much more time will pass, or how long we will [continue to] go forward, but even when we get old and stop [promoting as an act] I hope BTS can all be together."
BTS - who formed in 2010 - announced their hiatus in June 2022. Besides focusing on solo music, Jin and J-Hope have embarked on their mandatory military service.
